The creamy green color is quite moist to the touch, and delivers soft buildable color. If you blend it out, it looks sheer... however, if you layer it, the color can become quite intense. I also lightly rubbed the edges to create a soft crease and blended effect. Nothing was really neat since I was using my fingers. Then I used the silvery shimmery eyeshadow to 'transform' the green... it was a very silvery kind of glittery eyeshadow.. it felt dry to the touch, not like a smooth creamy texture of the green shade. However, the product wasn't gritty and the fallout, if any, was minimal. I kept patting on whenever I think I want more sparkles. You can still see the green undertones... the silvery shimmery eyeshadow is very sparkly, but it doesn't take away the base color.
